WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — Officials with the Wichita Falls Police Department have confirmed a man with a lengthy criminal history was booked into jail Tuesday in connection with a cold case murder from 2008.

According to a WFPD spokesperson, as a result of an investigation into the cold case, Terrance Odell Reese was booked into jail due to a possible connection to the murder of Hulen Waldon, 47.

Tuesday, May 11, a murder warrant was served on Reese, who was in federal custody. The warrant was issued in July 2018.

WFPD Public Information Officer Sgt. Charlie Eipper said he believes Reese was in federal custody due to a federal roundup of the gang he was in.

Waldon was murdered on February 21, 2008 in the 800 block of Dallas Street due to blunt force trauma.

No further details on the connection between Reese and Walden’s murder were released.

43-year-old Terrance Odell Reese has a $100,000 bond.

The affidavit is not filed, and he has not had any local charges for several years and apparently is on parole for other convictions.

A law enforcement source could only say this arrest is from a 2008 cold case murder that was solved recently by Wichita Falls Police Department.

Reese was charged with four counts of attempted murder in 1995 and was convicted on lesser charges and got 10 years. His jail record shows 30 arrests.

The only murder that date listed for the crime on the jail log in 2008 was the death by blunt force trauma to the head of Hulen Waldon who was found unconscious on a porch at 805 Dallas.

He died a few days later, never regaining consciousness.

Police say there were no witnesses and there were follow-up crime-stopper appeals for information on a suspect.

We stress we have no official confirmation on the murder charge on Reese. We are awaiting more information and court papers for additional details.
